It was peaceful before but protesters are no on the freeway and CHP has shut both sides down.

One protester injured.

Stock up on Gold Bond because if this keeps up it is going to be a long hot summer.

And the fires haven't even started.

L.A.F.D. got there, and are helping the injured guy. The north side of the freeway is open now, but the south side is still blocked.
 
2020-05-27 9:25:39 PM  
How did they get there?

I hope they're all wearing masks.

Yeah. L.A.Fire got there pretty quickly and the protesters gave them no grief.
L.A. fire got a clap on the way out of the scene.

I believe that being a pedestrian on the freeway, unless it's an emergency (broken down car, etc...) is a crime


We, obviously have a bit of a situation up here in Minneapolis, so lets loot a Target and a liquor store!

A lot of them (most)  are wearing masks. Also some attempt at social distancing.

Protesters leaving the freeway voluntarily.
 
2020-05-27 9:31:42 PM  
Have they even arrested the murdering officers yet?
Or do they actually want the situation to fester?

They'd stop traffic on the 405 to protest, but I don't think anybody would notice any change in traffic flow.

Hard to tell, but it sure looks like a whole lot of them are, which is good if they are going to do something like this.  It's a terrible time for protesting, but at least they aren't being total dimwits like the "OPEN EVERYTHING!!" dummies.

Mayor Trudeau Jr. has called for the Hennepin County Atty to press charges. No charges have been filed yet, as all the evidence, nor official cause of death has been released.

One officer (the one in the video) has been fired, no word on the others

You are factually wrong.

The protester was injured by a CHP cruiser who "sped" off after being mobbed by other protesters.

There was a second cop 50 feet behind him, who stopped and appeared as if he wanted to help. The mob attacked him before he could even open his door.

Yet ANOTHER situation here in Minneapolis. This is getting downright embarrassing and disgusting. Sooner or later (and I sure wish it was sooner) the police unions are going to realize that it is in their best interest to get rid of the bad apples before someone else does. Philando Castile, Justine Damond, and now this. This is now a pattern, not professional behavior.

Do the nonviolent armed black protestors in Georgia have to show the idiots in Minnesota and LA how it's done?

They just replayed it again. I was wrong - the second cop was more like 20 feet behind the first. The first mob didn't even have time to disperse.

Apparently paramedics arrived on the scene later.

Police seem to be pretty non-confrontational and are going a loose containment.

We really need this to die down a bit instead of flaring up via social media and turning into a shaitshow.

Yeah..... from all that I've seen plastered across the news all day.... it doesn't look good for the Minneapolis PD right now.

Even a jury full of Hellen Kellers and Ray Charles' would be able to convict on this.

Even the "good" cops are guilty of protecting the "bad" cops. Even passively protecting them by not doing anything to get them investigated.

All 4 were fired earlier today.  It's national news, has been since this morningWe've got threads about that here.  You claim to be from the Twin Cities so you should know better.  Why would you lie about this?

Difficulty: CHP. Cops in California don't provide medical assistance. It's a lot more likely the officer was going to take him into custody.

That's really good. It seems that this went about as well as could be be expected.
Both sides seem to have exercised restraint which is really good.

The injured protester pretty much brought this one himself by jumping on a police cruiser.

And the bosses who run these cities are happy with the bad cops, long as their shakedowns keep the cash flowing into city hall's coffers. This, though? This was stupid. Sloppy. You're not going to haul in a pile of fine revenue from a counterfeiting case. Counterfeiting is Secret Service territory. So you bring George into custody and treat him nicely in exchange for him giving up the (likely) local criminal enterprise that's forging $20 bills.

And then maybe the local cops get an attaboy at the big Secret Service press conference, and maybe for the more ambitious cops that can be leveraged into a cushy administrative job at a department out in the suburbs where the money's better and the hassles are less.

What you don't do is kill somebody who could be a useful witness.
